Muchli Masala (Indian Spicy Fried Fish)

READY IN: 34mins
Recipe by Oldman437

Quick, easy, delicious. I was looking for a low carb recipe that was somewhat out of the ordinary, and found this. Use fresh ginger, the powdered stuff is different entirely. Also, I thought sea salt worked better than table salt, it let more flavor shine through. Prep time includes marinate time.
